The Lizard Canary Association is dedicated to the promotion and conservation of the oldest breed of canary: the Lizard canary. The Lizard is believed to have originated in France during the reign of Louis XIV, but became established as a distinct variety thanks to selective breeding by British canary fanciers in the course of the eighteenth century.
The Lizard canary is so named because the pattern of its plumage has been likened to the scales of an exotic lizard, and its unique characteristics have survived unchanged up to the present day. Thanks to the L.C.A. and the dedicated fanciers who maintain pure-bred strains of the breed, the Lizard canary has emerged from the verge of extinction at the end of the Second World War to become a well established, if still rare, breed with a golden future.
